The U.S. House of Representatives has voted for the ratification of Sweden and Finland’s applications for NATO membership.
394 votes for and 18 against.
All 18 No votes came from Republicans - some pretty familiar names (Gaetz, Greene). Republicans who support Putin & Russia.
Reading over the thread my biggest complaint to the OP started by Walter was that he never defended his point. Never even tried . . . . .
It looks like Putin is using what he does not like about NATO to justify his invasion of Ukraine.
